When i was pregnant with my first child (23 years ago), i stenciled all the the walls in the nursery, even stenciled the cupboard doors! I was so happy with my results, i wanted to stencil every surface available! I find that it brings a uniqueness to your home, and the fact that you did it brings self pleasure!
I used a sponge not a brush, and even cut out my own stencils (very impressed by myself!).. Now all my efforts are hidden underneath so many coats of paint…Yes the children grew up and the room evolved with them.
But stencils are not only for walls and cupboard walls; You can stencil on fabric, floors, even tiles!
Have you ever tried your hand at stenciling? And how was the result?
